Furuya appeared at the game show in connection with the release of the PlayStation 3 action game "Mobile Suit Gundam - Target in Sight," produced by Namco Bandai Games Inc. He drew cheers from some 200 fans when he voiced Amuro Ray's famous line, "Amuro Ikimasu!" "I've heard that the image processing capability of next-generation game consoles has improved, and I think people will be able to enjoy a more realistic version of Gundam," Furuya said. During the event, Furuya played the PlayStation Portable action game "Gundam Battle Royale," which is set for release on Oct. 5, with three fans. Furuya finished second, prompting one of the players to comment, "You must be one of the new types of players." (Mainichi)
